On July 4th, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was finalized, and it laid the foundations for the birth of the United States of America. We’re all here because of this country, and we owe a lot to the events of 1776, which shaped who we are as a country and as individuals more than we can imagine. The United States isn’t perfect by any means, but as Americans, we have opportunities and freedoms which are, at times, easy to forget.
So, this July, we at Tardus are recognizing all the things that the US has achieved which can provide the way toward positive life changes for anyone who wants to make them. Freedom is important, and in the US, we all have the freedom to do the following things…
1. Get an Education
Across the world, many people are illiterate. Many people can’t afford to go to school, and even if they could, they live in areas where there aren’t any schools. We have schools. We have colleges. We have the internet. We can learn whatever we want and need to, as long as we put in the work and effort. An education is the hallmark of success and a fulfilled life. The accompanying debt that is associated with higher education is often a deterrent, but with Tardus strategies, it doesn’t have to be.
2. Let Go of the Past by Getting Out of Debt
Sometimes, we fall into bad situations or bad habits. Sometimes we pursue our dreams of education or entrepreneurship. No matter how the debt was accrued, many of us have it and it can affect our day to day life. Oftentimes, it becomes a frequent reminder of a mistake or failure. Luckily, we live in a country that, while not always providing the solutions that actually work, at least provides the freedom to pursue the ones that do (if you are lucky enough to know them). Don’t allow your debt to become your master. Instead, let it go, and move out of the past and into a present that is marked by freedom.
3. Start a business… or another business
In some countries, starting a business is illegal. In others, it may be extremely difficult or costly. Here, we have the ability to start a business nearly whenever and wherever we want. E-commerce offers rare opportunities that weren’t available even just a decade or two ago. Embrace your freedom and pursue your passion, whether it’s a craft store on Etsy, a home-based business, or a restaurant franchise.
4 - Become wealthy and give back to the community
There is no cap to success and wealth in the United States. Whether you want to run a small store selling antiques, or you want to start the next Google, America will allow you to scale to wherever you’d like to go – as long as you have the tools and resources you need to make it happen. Tardus clients often find themselves completing the program and reaching financial freedom with thousands in monthly cash flow and a deep desire to do good. This is both the reward and responsibility of being free from debt and your 9-5 job… Share your wisdom, share your experiences, and share your wealth with those who haven’t yet discovered this path. We can not only build a better world for ourselves, but we can also give back so that others can do the same. Which leads us to our final point.
5. Be yourself… whoever that may be
The War of Independence was a war about self-determination. Those men that fought believed that they should have the right to choose their own destiny. It’s been a rocky road, but for Americans, we’ve never been able to choose our own destiny like we can now. Take advantage of this and build the life you want to live, starting today.
Above everything else, this is what July 4th symbolizes in our collective history and identity.
Happy Independence Day!
